Today’s projects are a coordinating set, a Window Gatefold and a no measurement Gift bag. I used the beautiful, sparkling, stunning brightly gleaming Suite

The suite creates a wow with the simplest creations gorgeous designer series paper with foil accents beautiful color coordination. The Christmas gleaming bundle consists of Christmas gleaming Stamp set with beautiful baubles gorgeous Holly leaf image as well as some sentiment with a beautiful script font, the gleaming ornament punch pack makes it simple and quick to punch out the coordinating Bauble.

The card: The original design came from Jennifer Maguire

Two pieces of Very Vanilla card stock measuring 8″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4″ also at the 2″ mark on one side of the card base.  Will also need an additional scrap piece of Very Vanilla to create a Stitched oval for the center of the inside, 11″ x 3/4″  scored at 2″ 4 1/2″ from the 2″ mark to create the belly band. Two pieces of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/4″ x 1 7/8″.

Glue your two panels of designer series paper onto the 2-inch section the crate the front of the card then using the second smallest stitched oval from the Stitch Shape Dies center in the middle of your 2-inch score line run it through your big shot.

Now place your two bases together centering the side you’ve cut out with the other side to line up that way when you close your gatefold it will match up.

Are used easy release tape to secure then pull apart your bases and run the second card base through your big shot to create the front opening.

Now glue your two-card bases together. on the inside of the gate for Card, I closed the front of the card then lightly penciled the oval using that same oval die to cut out a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Now that you have a traced penciled oval in the center of your inside card stamp the Holly Leaf image using Momento ink colored it in using Stampin Blends markers. I now stamp the sentiment” Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly ” with Versamark ink on the Stitched Very Vanilla oval using Copper embossing powder then heat set with your heat tool. Now glue down your oval in the center covering your pencil mark.

Now create your belly band using the Very Vanilla cardstock piece measuring 11″ x 3/4″ on the center of this belly band I use the old Olive/pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon, on an additional piece of Very Vanilla card stock I stamped the sentiment” Merry Christmas” and Pretty Peacock ink then glued it down to the center of your belly band at here both ends of the belly band slide it over the front of your card. I added a few Holiday Rhinestones for a little bling!

The gift bag: 

There are no measurements to this gift bag you can make it any size. Simply fold down one end of your designer series paper approximately a 1/2″ high then adhered Tear and T1/2″aped to the side to glue together.

Then fold up the bottom portion approximately a 1/2″ to 1 inch, then angle and fold to the center your two sides then unfold.

Unfold open back up and fold in towards the center then use Tear and Tape and it here together.

Now fold in each side lengthwise approximately a 1/2, then you glue to the bottom then place your hand inside open it up, it will create a crease on each side and glue the bottom down. I then created handles using a hole punch, two holes on each side and using the lovely Old Olive/ Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon and the copper brads to adhere. I then used an element from the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements for a slight accent.

The projects are complete!

GATEFOLD BIRTHDAY CARD WITH THE TO A WILD ROSE BUNDLE!

Hello, my friends!

I was in need of a few birthday cards so I created a gatefold birthday card using the wonderful To A Wild Rose Bundle. I absolutely love the beautiful multi-step distinctive stamps that come with the set as well as the beautiful font with these sentiments also comes with coordinating dies set Wild Rose Dies. This set is One of the Eight Bundles that is going to be on sale Wednesday Thursday and Friday with the Online Extravaganza.

The card base is Whisper White card stock measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ score each side at 2 1/8″‘to create the gatefold. An additional piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 11″ x 1 1/2″(this is for the bellyband)  Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″, as well as two panels for the front 1 7/8 ” x 5″. Two pieces of Blushing Bride card stock measuring 2″ x 5 1/4″. Scrap pieces of Whisper White cardstock for flowers and leaves, scrap piece Vellum for the sentiment.

Take your two panels of designer series paper glue down onto your two panels of Blushing Bride card stock these two panels will be glued down to each side of the front of the card to create the gate. On the designer series paper measuring 5 1/4,” x 4″ I used the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the stamp set  Beautiful Friendship but you could stamp any sentiment you prefer I stamped using Versamark ink and embossed with Black and embossing powder, heat set using your heat tool. I then stamped the foliage image onto each of the corners using Pair Pizzazz ink. Now glue this piece down onto your card base this will be the inside of your card. 

On scrap pieces of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper( I use the pattern the has a pink wash) I stamped using Rococo Rose ink and the Rose image then cut it out using the coordinating die. Using Pair Pizzazz ink I then stamped a few of the leaf images and cut them out using the coordinating die. Now stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment using Versamark ink  use Black embossing powder and heat set with your heat tool. Now to create the bellyband, I glue down the Leaf images as well as the Rose onto the center of the bellyband. Then across the center of the bellyband, I glued down some of the Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon. Cut out your sentiment on Vellum using paper snips then attach to the center of the Rose with glue dots. Glue the two ends of the belly band together to create your loop. A few Rhinestones for a little bling. Your card is now complete.
